Nunnelee enjoys huge edge in campaign donations

As election season comes to a close, politicians are still hoping for last minute donations that will give their campaigns a final push to the finish.

Locally, residents of the Golden Triangle have been more than willing to open their wallets and donate to the candidate of their choice.

Incumbent U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee, R-Tupelo, has raised $1.3 million, dwarfing the amount raised by his Democratic challenger, Brad Morris of Oxford, whose donations total just over $100,000.
